This week: studying Zika Virus RNA, tracking sources of poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances in drinking water, isolating high-affinity enzyme inhibitors from natural extracts — and more!
Each and every day, ACS grants free access to a new peer-reviewed research article from one of the Society’s journals. These articles are specially chosen by a team of scientific editors of ACS journals from around the world to highlight the transformative power of chemistry. Access to these articles will remain open to all as a public service.
